Impressive homework!


We have seen lots of interesting models of Anderson shelters being brought in as part of our homework. Today we even saw an air raid shelter made out of cake!




Night Walker


Today we read a poem called the Night Walker. We responded using pastels and black paper to show what we thought the poem might be about when we first heard it and then explored the deeper meaning of the poem.




Keyboard Skills.


In an ever increasing digital age the ability to use a keyboard quickly and type well are really useful skills.  I had to look at the keyboard as I typed this post and then looked up after I finished a sentence to make any corrections!  I wish I could type better!

You will use good keyboard skills in typing in secondary school and University.  It is much easier to learn a new skill when you are young!  Which is why I still struggle to touch type!

One lesson each half term we are going to really practise our typing skills – but it would be even better if you did a little practise at home – on Typing Club an online typing tutor.

What is great is when we log in using our Google account it remembers the lesson we are on so we can keep moving forward when we are ready and everyone can work at their own pace.

Let’s get typing!

We have been learning about scaling up and down. We started by using our knowledge of shapes and enlarging and reducing them. We then applied this knowledge to help us solve scaling problems with measures. We learnt to use a ‘box diagram’ to help us.
